After that Holshouser came in, after Bob Scott, of course. One thing that
interests me in that is that we have alternated between liberal and
conservative governors all the way through my experience. You see Kerr
Scott was a liberal, and Umstead was conservative. Hodges was
progressive, if not liberal, but the Umstead and Hodges years were sort
of melted together. Then, Terry Sanford, liberal, after Hodges, and
after Sanford, Moore was a conservative, and after Moore, Scott was a
liberal. Then a conservative in Holshouser, and after him, Jim Hunt was
a liberal. It just swings and forth.
